Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique

Wood Toy Shop, Cannes, France

Wood Toy Shop, Cannes, France

Here’s my contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique:

We live in a very tech-dependent and tech-driven society. It’s not a bad thing. I’m all for the best in Science and Tech. But when I see something that harkens back to the simpler, more innocent days of our parents and grandparents, I can’t help but wax nostalgic.

I came across this stall when we were walking through one of the quaint pedestrian walkways in Cannes last summer. When I saw this on display at the door, I was transported back to my childhood. This image against all our gadgetry these days is surely unique!

    I think the hand crafted wooden toys will outlast the techno toys in terms of popularity! So beautiful to think some other person made this by hand so that others can enjoy it. It’s a rare connection. Lovely joyful photo.

  4. One of my favorite cartoons as a kid as Pinochio. It also has a great moral lesson in the end. I do miss the simply yet fun, creative toys of the past. Now, everything is high tech and a lot of them don’t even involve kids socializing during play. Great post.

    I agree with you, high tech is not bad. But there is still something very magic about those old mechanical or wooden toys. Cool shot.
